None of these claims are considered proven by medical science, and sarsaparilla hasn’t been studied for all of them. Some of these uses have limited support from preliminary studies that suggest sarsaparilla could show these effects, but it’s too early in the process to know for certain. Other claims have been disproven. The medicinal uses that research has shown some support for include:

  • Treating syphilis
  • Treating cancer
  • Protecting the skin
  • Lessening inflammation and pain
  • Improving kidney function
